I feel like I'm always coming up with recipes that remind me of my grandma's cooking. It's just comfort to me. This super easy kale recipe is one I threw together and have enjoyed so much I've made it 4 times in a week. The optional, but highly recommended, ingredient is imitation bacon bits. They give it a flavor just like the greens my grandma would cook all afternoon with some ham or a bone. These are made in a just a few minutes thanks to theInstant Pot, but could be adapted to cook in a pan with a lid for 2 or 3 times the cooking time.
Set the Instant Pot to sauté and add onions. Stir around a bit just in the dry pan (I don't bother to add oil or properly brown them, just get them started cooking and sweetening up). Add Bac'n chips and stir some more, then top with kale and turn over as much as you can to integrate flavor. Pour in the broth and stir around on bottom to release any stuck on onion goodness, and then put the lid on. Turn the Instant Pot off, then press Manual and set to 3 minutes. When it's done, quick release the pressure and stir again and enjoy! I love that the leaves still have nice flavor and the steps are totally soft. It really does taste just like Grandma's!
I wrote a children's book, How Our Vegan Family Celebrates, to help vegans and vegan allies know how to include vegans in their celebrations and give affirmation to vegan kids who may feel alone. The book goes through holidays throughout the year and has a section at the back with parent tips!
